I know it is a bit of a diversion from our usual back and forth. But I consider myself well rounded in my past times. Sports, politics, the arts are all important parts of who I am. If anyone thinks this post is irrelevant to the board, I really don’t care.
But Hank Aaron was a sports legend who was more than just a talented athlete. He used his status as a Hall of Famer to do good work in the business community and philanthropically. His receiving the COVID vaccine and feeling great about it is a good message for those in the Black and Brown communities to trust it and not be trepidatious about it.
I recall when he broke Babe Ruth’s HR record. I was 9 and playing little league myself. It was very exciting to watch. I only hit two dingers in my career (3 years).
Farewell, Hammerin’ Hank. And thanks for the memories.
